13 Dec 9:45pm | Beth McMullen – Girl, Schminterschmupted
The grandfather of modern psychology, Sigmund Freud, once gifted us with the wisdom that “”sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.”” Beth’s brain once gifted her with the wisdom that sometimes you just need to eat two family bars of chocolate and three servings of spaghetti bolognese and then go for a run at 11.30pm to feel better about life. Who got it right? Who knows.
At one point in her life, Beth was mad certifiable. Now, her and her brain are mad BFFs (mostly). Part sketch, part musical, part stand-up, part performance lecture and part therapy session (jks), this is a show inspired by mental illness. Because sometimes our brains and the inconvenient things they tell us to do need a good fun-poking.
